Run Kelly Run!

Marathon Runner Collage Painting

Now that I've finished up my most recent long term sub job, I no longer have an excuse not to exercise more frequently.  BUMMER.  This week I'm getting back to the Couch to 5K plan.  Ok, I'm going to be honest... I DESPISE running.  Truly.  The day we had to run the mile in elementary for the Presidential Physical Fitness test was always the day I was most likely to feign illness (sorry Mimi).  I also know there is no faster way to get myself back in fighting shape than running.  UGH.

If you have never checked out C25K, you really should.  It's like "Running for Dummies"... you can download their app to your phone or itouch, or go old school and just print the plan and carry it with you.  Crank up the ipod and hit the ground... walking.  Well, they start you off walking anyway, and running in short spirts until you supposedly build up enough stamina to run for longer and longer stretches, and eventually you supposedly will be able to run for an entire 5K.  I think I am blogging about this in part to hold myself accountable, because I know someone is going to want to know how it's going... so, here I go.  Off and... wait for it... wait for it...WALKING... ok, if you insist... running.
